Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday announced the dates for the 2021 edition of the Pakistan Super League, and the defending champions Karachi Kings will take on the 2019 champions Quetta Gladiators in the opening fixture on February 20.

The tournament this year will only be staged at two venues in Karachi and Lahore to ensure all the Covid-19 protocols can be followed and the final this year will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on March 22. This will be the first time since 2017 that the final will be played in Lahore.

"We had to make the tough decision to limit matches to Karachi and Lahore, and this decision has been taken in the larger interest of the event, participants and the country," said Babar Hamid, Director - Commercial in an official statement.

"We want to limit the unnecessary exposure of the players as much as practically possible so that the players can operate in a safe and healthy environment that, in turn, will allow them to continue to entertain the fans and followers with their talent, skills and gamesmanship," he added.
